This exciting new commission from the creator of Leásungspell, one of 2018’s sell-out events, sheds fresh light on the bloody Battle of Guisborough, fought in the heart of the Tees Valley on 16 January 1643.

Join Teesside poet Bob Beagrie as he brings the past to life in vivid detail with words and music, exploring parallels between 17th century attitudes and contemporary issues surrounding free speech, fake news and social division.

Civil Insolencies charts the events leading up to the battle, the clash between the Roundheads and the Cavaliers, and the conflict’s horrific aftermath of ‘A World Turn’d Upside Down’ from the perspectives of several historical characters.

Introduced by Phil Philo, former museum curator, Captain Cook Birthplace & Dorman Museums
